Triad Pride Acting Company is proud to present Spring Awakening, opening May 12, 2023. Winner of 8 Tony Awards, including Best Musical, Spring Awakening is based on the play by Frank Wedekind and features a book and lyrics by Steven Sater and music by Duncan Sheik.
With an electrifying score that swings from folk to rock, Spring Awakening follows the unforgettable journey of a group of students in late 19th-century Germany as they move from adolescence into adulthood. Facing both the devastation and the wonder of sexuality and self-discovery, the characters navigate through their coming-of-age despite parents and authority figures who are intent on withholding information and suppressing thought and expression. Adapted from Frank Wedekind’s 1891 expressionist play about the trials, tears and exhilaration of the teen years, which was banned in its time, this modern masterpiece is an exhilarating fusion of morality, sexuality and rock & roll. Spring awakening explores provocative ideas with explicit language, and sexual situations.
Performances of “Spring Awakening” will run in Greensboro on May 12th, 13th, 19th & 20th at 8 pm
and May 14th & 21st at 2 pm at Congregational United Church of Christ located at 400 W Radiance Drive, Greensboro, NC 27403. Tickets for all performances are $15 and are on sale now at triadprideperformingarts.org, by calling 336-589-6267, or at the door.
